Shocking revelations about Sukhjeet’s family’s traumatic past trigger a series of events that completely upturn his life. He had a care-free existence, with a bright future in Punjab all mapped out. But instead, he is forced to embark on a harrowing journey, on the run from corrupt police, leaving behind everything he knows and loves. A moving tale of sacrifice and heartbreak. However, if destiny can be cruel, it can also be surprisingly benevolent. But will Sukhjeet be able to seize the opportunities that do eventually cross his path? Can fundamental human bonds overcome the divisive cultural barriers that stand between him and real, meaningful relationships with those he meets along the way? Contains adult themes. This passionate rollercoaster of a story offers a fresh perspective on many of the pressing and serious themes being debated across the world today: impact of immigration on communities; multiculturalism; racism and prejudice; femininity and feminism; and the role of religion in modern society. Filled with intense emotion and grounded authentically in the gritty realities of modern, urban life in both India and Britain, this is the opposite of your typical East vs West culture clash narrative.
